Monday, July 15, 2013


Beyonce Beyonce Beyonce Beyonce

Brace yourself for Beyonce: For the first time in four years, today's leading lady Beyonce takes to the touring trails on the heels of her explosive Super Bowl appearance earlier this year. "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" gives a nod to her famous hubby Jay Z's last name, but make no mistake, this show finds the vocal powerhouse exclusively in charge as she debuts new tunes, several solo smashes from the past decade and possibly a nod to her days in Destiny's Child.

Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam

A rare Pearl Jam performance: While it was common to catch Pearl Jam on the road in the scene shaping days of grunge, the alternative rockers haven't hit the road all that often in the new millennium. As a result, Seattle's favorite sons had no trouble filling up the friendly confines of Wrigley Field to stage a career retrospective show, though don't just bank on the hits as the band frequently likes to dig deep into the vaults and jam well into the night.

Jay Z Justin Timberlake Jay Z Justin Timberlake

Jay Z and Justin: Take two massive names in the rap/hip-hop R&B worlds, check their egos at the door, let their creative geniuses run wild and the outcome is the sure to be spectacular on the "Legends Of The Summer Tour." The mere dozen date co-headlining outing is split between frequent collaborators Jay Z and Justin Timberlake, who have collectively sold more than 67 million albums, racked up 23 Grammy Awards and even have a pair of Emmys to their credit.
